    More info, great article and link by the way. (Although management fees are not deducted)

    University of Michigan Professor H. Nejat Seyhun analyzed 7,802 trading days for the 31 years from 1963 to 1993 and concluded that just 90 days generated 95% of all the years' market gains — an average of just three days per year.1

    Is your point you do not need to be in the market all the time to make a better return?

    The Invisible Killer

    Dihydrogen monoxide is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there. Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.

    Dihydrogen monoxide:
    • is also known as hydroxyl acid, and is the major component of acid rain.
    • contributes to the "greenhouse effect."
    • may cause severe burns.
    • contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
    • accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
    • may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
    • has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.
    Contamination Is Reaching Epidemic Proportions!
    Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in America today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage in the midwest, and recently California.

    Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:
    • as an industrial solvent and coolant.
    • in nuclear power plants.
    • in the production of styrofoam.
    • as a fire retardant.
    • in many forms of cruel animal research.
    • in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
    • as an additive in certain "junk-foods" and other food products.
    Companies dump waste DHMO into rivers and the ocean, and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is still legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer!

    The Horror Must Be Stopped!
    The American government has refused to ban the production, distribution, or use of this damaging chemical due to its "importance to the economic health of this nation." In fact, the navy and other military organizations are conducting experiments with DHMO, and designing multi-billion dollar devices to control and utilize it during warfare situations. Hundreds of military research facilities receive tons of it through a highly sophisticated underground distribution network. Many store large quantities for later use.

    Looks like everything is going to be bad this year. Most areas in ag are going to take a big hit this year also. We have a ranch out here it looks like a long tough year for us.

    It's not a loss until you sell and actually realize the loss. Sure the market value is coming down at this time, but unless you are actually selling at these lower values you have lost nothing. Keep in mind investing isn't a day to day project; but it's a long-term vision that one needs to adhere to. Investing is like baseball in the sense that you will strike out, fly out, ground out; but the singles, doubles, triples and occasionaly home run should highly offset the 'outs' or you need to be hiring someone to manage your investments for you that is better suited to keep you profitable.

    In terms of the economy, we only saw a .5% growth in our domestic economy. Sure it's growth, but generally you want to see 2-3% growth in our domestic economy annually, so it's not as positive as we would like to think. China's economy still grew at a 6% rate in 2015, so it's well above the average curve yet still behind the 8-9% growth they were performing at, but still more positive than we would like to think.

    If I were you, I'd keep an eye on them but not to the point where I'm obsessing over their every move. I'd also hold on to them too.
